Description

The Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law is excited to announce a two-part webinar series on Affordable Housing Preservation Strategies for Illinois Advocates. This training program is funded by the Lawyers Trust Fund of Illinois.

Part 1: Multifamily Housing Preservation Webinar

Project-based Section 8 housing can be lost from our communities when the contracts expire and the owner decides to "opt out" of the affordable housing program or when mortgages mature or are prepaid. These units can also be lost if their conditions deteriorate and HUD orders the abatement or termination of the affordable housing contract. Advocates will learn strategies for addressing building-wide habitability issues in an effort to prevent the loss of affordable housing. This webinar will focus on risks to affordable multifamily housing programs across the State of Illinois and strategies for promoting long-term affordability.
